CCT presents Lend Me a Tenor

The Canton Community Theatre presents Ken Ludwig’s Lend Me a Tenor beginning Friday, February 16, at the CCT space at the Village Shoppes. It’s September 1934, a big night for the Cleveland Opera House, and world famous tenor Tito Morelli is set to perform Othello, his greatest role. Saunders, the general manager, hopes this will put Cleveland on the operatic map. Morelli arrives too late for rehearsal and through a series of hilarious mishaps is given a double dose of tranquilizers, which mixed with the booze he has consumed, causes him to pass out. Saunders convinces aspiring singer Max to put on the costume and take the stage as Morelli. And then Morelli wakes and puts on his second costume so there are now two Othello’s running around. It will be a night Cleveland will never forget. Showtimes are Feb. 16-17 and 23-24 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 25 at 5 p.m. Tickets are $15 per person and are available at
